I remember him, he was very young No one spoke like him, he was someone And I carried on, like I couldn't stop All of it for us, baby
And you, you got in my way Stood between me and my friends It was my sin, it was my shame You were unconscious to the pain I was in
[Chorus] I hear there's trouble in shangri-la I run through the grass I run over the stones Down to the sea Show me the way back, honey I hear there's trouble in shangri-la I run through the grass I run over the stones Show me the way back... to the sea
With honor be it spoken To understand this light that we carry And let it light your way Of course, you know, I generally take it
Well, I make accommodations for you And consider this... Well, you used to be my love I make excuses for you
You can consume all the beauty in the room, baby I know you can, I've seen you do it And it brings up the wind And it rises around you in pillars of color
But the promise has been broken As you walk through the shadow of death You try to see no evil But you are so heartbroken You say, dear god, make it stop!
Before the dawn of separation Brings up the wind Rises around you I hear there's trouble in shangri-la In pillars of color Trouble in shangri-la I make accommodations for you
I guess we don't believe Things could go that far We all believe in people... That we think believe in god Somewhere in the night... Someone feels the pain The ones who walk away Try to love again...
